Ruby Tuesday: Big Red

We pass this old red combine every day on the way home, parked in what is probably its final resting place. Wouldn't you love to see this old girl in action, with all those gears and bands and do-hickies doing whatever they do?

Check out more Ruby Tuesday entries at MaryT's place, Work of the Poet.

I would love to see it in moving action, but don't know about the noise. Best wishes :)

Great old beast! I can see how you couldn't resist a photo, and it's perfect for RT.

Gee, I didn't know you were so knowledgeable about farm implements, all those technical terms! o)

With her rust and faded paint she is still beautiful!

My RT is on my photoblog: Carletta’s Captures.

Kind of sad to see it sitting there rusting....perfect for RT though

what does it actually do? sorry I've never seen it before...

Love it. I love old buildings, old vehicles, and all of that. If this was mind, I'd take it a step further and do a monochrome background so only the combine tractor had color.

Great shot!

Hope this works. I haven't been able to save posts or comments, which is why I haven't replied.

Jama - it's a harvesting machine for corn.
